The Vampire's Kiss - A Love Sonnet

The Vampire's Kiss

The tender touch of lips burns like a light
And like a rising mist, this deep'ning kiss
Blots out all thought save sensual delight.
I've tasted love - but no love burned like this.

I feel your breath escape - a shivered hiss
Mixed with my breath. Your body shudders. Tight
As Titan's grip your arms embrace me - This
Is our time. We share our love this night.

Long have we waited for this fated night.
A rendezvous: a tryst we dared not miss.
Anticipation, lust, desire and fright
Add passion's fevered fervour to our bliss.

Then in the morning, I shall steal away;
Though soon I shall return, at end of day.

This poem was composed just last night, at Viva Voce.

"And if we have unearned luck, now to scape the serpent's tongue, we will make amends ere long. Else the Puck a liar call ..."
